The 2021 BEST Awards (Best Electronics Systems Technologies) from Commercial Integrator focus on letting the integrator audience know which AV products have stood out among the rest this year. 

This collection of outstanding AV products and services are impacting the commercial integration industry every day, and we seek to give each winner its due respect for helping to advance the industry.  

The 2021 BEST Awards selections were judged by an unbiased panel. Judging is done individually, with each judge giving a score for three separate categories for each audio video product. 

Scoring categories included product design and technological innovation, functional features of the product, and the benefit that each product provides to commercial integrators. Scores were tallied in order to determine the winners in each product category.  

“As businesses reopen and begin outfitting their spaces for the new normal of more hybrid, collaborative work and education, integrators will be at the forefront of that transformation,” says CI editorial director Jonathan Blackwood.  

“Understanding which products will help enable that transformation is paramount to providing the best solutions for customers. There are a number of submissions to look through, each one of them certainly deserving of praise. Only one can be chosen in each product category,” he says. 

Our judges make sure to consider the benefits each product provides to integrators and their businesses. Further, we try to consider how these products improve the workflow of end users once the integrator is finished with the project and off the site. 

When it comes down to it, the products selected this year provide serious benefits to integrators and their customers.
